I like to know what tires in the 35" or 36" range could i install on the original 16" rims, because i saw a truck in the skyjacker page and i think they may work very well in muddy terrain.
nah i wouldnt reccomend mounting a 12.50 wide tire on anything below a 8 inch wide wheel...because if you do it will give it the roller-skate look and you dont want that..think about gettin a wider wheel along with your tires
2000 Dodge 1500 Sport 4x4
5.5 skyjacker suspension lift
36x14.50x16.50 Mickey Thompson Baja Belted Tires
16.5x12 Weld Super Single II's
Well I'll bet yall a dollar that those are swamper Q78's. The reason I say this is cause those are 7 in wide wheel and the tires fits it right. The q78 is realy a 36/10.50 and will fit a factory rim perfect (7 or 8 in factory wheel that is). I am planing to run a set of these on my 2000 ram with 3 in suspension lift after my 285's run bald. I spoke to a man that runs the Q78 swamper tires on centerline helcats with a 3 in suspension and he says he rubs only at full lock. Hope this better answers your question.....
I've been looking in 4 wheel parts wholesalers the swamper tires and the Q78 is 9.5 inches wide and 35.5" high, but the 36x12.50-16 said that is only 9" wide and 36.2" high, plus is radial. It is possible that they make a mistake in the printing or is possible that the radial is actually narrower than the Q78?
And anybody knows the width of the original rim??
First check this site out.....
If the swampers are anything like the buckshots I think the radial would be a little wider. When you get down to the nitty gritty of it all you usually rub tire tread not case width but I dont think anybody makes a tall skiny radial. If you find one please let me know...... I have myself have grown tired of cleaning my truck every time it rains from 35x20.50x16in tires(haha) throwing dirty water all over my truck I would now just rather keep it as much under the fender well as possible. Just personal preference.... hope this helps you.
I'm glad this was brought up. I also wondered about the tires for the truck in the Skyjacker ad. I had considered running 36x12.5.16 tsl radials on the factory 16x7 rims but I don't think I'd ever feel comfortable wheeling when aired down. I also considered the q78x16's on the factory rims but I don't want the flat spots in the morning or the other quirks with bias plys. The main advantage to them is their sidewall strength.
